First I thought I wanted to make a scrappier version of one of the quilts from Scrap Basket Suprises, so I cut a bunch of blue squares and half square triangles. Then I changed my mind about which quilt from the book I wanted to try. Then I decided that there was a better way to accomplish what I wanted to do... which left me with a whole bunch of blue and white half square triangle units that wouldn't be useful to my latest vision.
So I made pinwheels. And I surrounded them with the blue squares. And for a quilt I didn't plan to make, I think it's pretty darn cute.
I cut more pieces for the quilt from the book, my blue and white Monkey Business Baby Quilt and it's almost done, just one more corner to quilt and the binding to do.
I'm dying to try some of the patterns from the Pajama Quilter DVD that came in the mail this week (why didn't anyone tell me there are bees?!?!), but I decided I should make sure my quilting problems really were because of the fusible batting I used on the monster quilt. Now that the rest of the batting is in the trash, I'm quilting happily again.
